Just got mine yesterday, 2 days earlier than expected so I wasnt prepared to install it. Havent even made a backup of my current system. After doing so, I decided to do a clean install of Windos 7 Ultimate 64 bit and did the recommended SSD Optimizations like enable TRIM, disable superprefect, Pagefile, etc. So far I have only my drivers fully installed from the disc. Have not done windows updates or driver updates because there are alot, but this thing is running like a champ so far. Fast boot times and shutdown times. Everything is so snappy. But then again, theres nothing installed really. Will report back in a couple of days.
Anyone got a tutorial on how to install this into my 2007 iMac?
Do I have to backup everything from my iMac to an external hard drive?
I will have to re-install the OS into this SSD right?
First time opening up an iMac....need help.
Well, I don't know if you even have a 2.5" rive in the iMac or a regular 3.5" drive. You can check with Mactracker.ca to see what you have.
1. In any case, I would do a clone backup first to an external drive. Use carbon copy cloner[bombich.com] or SuperDuper[shirt-pocket.com].
2. Then clone the existing drive onto the new SSD.
3. Then put in the new SSD into the iMac
That way you don't have to reinstall anything and end up with two clone backups in the end can then decide what to do. At some point a new fresh clean install is always good and gets more complicated if you are using bootcamp etc., but to get started I would do the above. If you have a 3.5 inch drive in the iMac then you will need a bracket, which will not come with the Agility 4.
Has anyone received the rebate for this drive, or confirmation that their rebate has been processed? I just tried the rebate tracker, and it's saying it can't find anything relating to Offer Code OCZ-11882 or can't find anything referencing my tracking number either!
